The notebooks in the picture above are really cute, huh? I was digging through the stationery section at TJ Maxx last summer when I found them. I maybe paid $6 for the three of them and was really excited to bring these back to my office to be used (my office is not a very formal place). Only it is close to a year later, and they all remain untouched
I've tried to use them many times, but I can't bring myself to mark up the pristine pages. I end up putting a smaller white notepad inside of the book and writing on that. I realize how silly this sounds, and that they are meant to be written in. I can't seem to just jot down my deliverables from the latest meeting I attended. I feel like I am waiting for something magnificent to write on the first page, but the words never come.
I would love to say that I didn't have other kinds of stationery sitting in a desk drawer, waiting to be used. Don't even get me started on the wonder that is the Target Dollar Spot. Cutest Post-its and notepads ever (and they are each a dollar). I may need some kind of intervention here.
Do you have something that you collect and like so much, you can't bring yourself to use it?
